Denton residents get their chance to weigh in on the city’s proposed 2009-10 budget during a public hearing tonight.
The budget includes no tax rate increase, and the base rates for city electric, water, wastewater and trash service would not change. But residents would see some higher costs, including increased athletic fees and facility rental charges at recreation centers.
A City Council vote is set for Sept. 22.
New expenditures include $100,000 from the tree mitigation fund on a tree canopy survey.
